There is something about Sunday nights- I just don't want to cook. I'm not sure why, but I never have any inspiration or desire on Sunday nights. Enter panini press. Now, I can make a decent dinner, without a lot of exertion. It's not just a sandwich, it's a panini. I don't feel like I am selling my family short, but I also don't have to put a whole lot of work in. :) I am looking forward to playing around with panini ideas this year. We had ham and cheese paninis and salad with homemade Thousand Island dressing.
I spread Dijon mustard on both sides of the panini bread
I used Provolone cheese. My mom made these for me a while back and used fontina. They were way better with fontina. I'm saving my fontina cheese for another recipe this month. Ham I butter the bread on both sides. You can do olive oil, too. Cook for a few minutes.
